Hello all,

Been a few weeks since I’ve posted – the paying job is trumping my writing endeavors and that’s partly due to such minor things like college tuition! Speaking of colleges, my oldest son Ryan and his fellow University of Maryland Terps, are raising money for The Children’s Miracle Network http://childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/.

His goal is to raise usd100.00 by this Saturday but I’m hoping, after reading about The Children’s Miracle Network’s efforts, that these social and business networking tools will result in a much larger sum. $1.00, $5.00, $50.00 – every little bit counts so if you can spare a minute and a couple of bucks, please consider helping the Terp community raise money for this worthwhile cause. The following recap is taken from the CMNH website;

‘In 30 years, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised $4.7 billion, most of it $1 at a time. But the need is ever-present. Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease.

Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open. Our Network includes 170 hospitals that provide world-class care for every patient. In fact, our U.S. member hospitals provide $3.4 billion in charity care each year.’

This Saturday, March 9th, Ryan & other Terp’s, will be dancing on Cole Field at the University of Maryland College Park campus, for 12 hours straight. With a vow not to sit down once they want to mirror the strength and determination shown by these amazing children fighting disease and injury.

TO DONATE: Ryan’s direct link is as follows;

Thank you -please pass on and share-
A very proud and blessed Mom
